About College Covered®

In 2017, Discover® Student Loans launched CollegeCovered.com — a site designed to guide high school students and their parents through all stages of the college process, from conquering the college essay and application to choosing a college.

As a leading lender, Discover Student Loans has always encouraged students to maximize scholarships, grants and other free financial aid before taking out loans. We know that going to college is a process that starts long before you need to take out a loan and we understand that navigating that process is complex and often daunting. That’s why we created College Covered. We wanted to simplify the information and empower college-bound families with the know-how to plan and pay for college with ease and confidence.

College Covered is a free resource with a wealth of information and tools, including a College Planning Calendar, an Award Letter Comparison Tool, an opportunity to win a $5,000 scholarship and so much more. The site also provides high school counselors with free tools to support their students throughout the college application process.

For students who need help covering college costs, Discover Student Loans provides private loans to students at over 2,400 colleges and graduate schools across the country. Discover Student Loans is a division of Discover Bank®, a trusted financial institution for over 100 years. The company offers a variety of financial products, including FDIC-insured savings accounts, personal loans and is well-known for its iconic credit card.
